India signing in

I'm posting this for someone else. A fellow Blogger has signed up from India and will start posting soon inshallah. Here is his news hope to get more news from India directly from him.

Here's signing in on behalf of India. I am based in Calcutta, India and will Insha Allah keep sending you posts on how Ramadan unfolds in this unique country - the second largest home to Muslims in the world!!

THe latest news is that Ramadan will start in most of the country on Monday 25th September (some parts like Kerala will have started a day or even two earlier ). The unique thing about Ramadan this year is that it conincides with the HIndu festival of Durga Puja in Calcutta.

Calcutta is a multicultural city and people are geenrally very tolerant and understanding about other's faiths and practices. I will keep you updated about the progress on Ramadan in this City of Joy....
